Nobody picked him up and nobody signed him and he eventually left for the KHL. Was he an NHL player? Maybe. Was he as good as people made him out to be? Obviously not if no other NHL team cared to give him a shot. Is Gus an NHL player? Yeah, probably. Is he better than people make him out to be? I would say, yes. I think he's a 5-6th defenseman and probably won't be much more. He's not good defensively and not good enough offensively to make up for it.
Back to the actual topic of the thread which is Streit, if that guy attempts another spin move at the blueline and coughs up the puck I'm gonna lose my freakin mind.
I think you mean Bartulis..more than Kukkonen?
